"Gives good feedback" "Would take again" "Hilarious"

By far one of my favorite professors. Is not biased w. his personal virtues. He is witty, fun, and keeps things interesting. He broke the CTAP (2,000 word required paper) up into 7 steps that we turned in throughout the semester instead of one bulk term paper. GENIUS I wish this out of the box thinking was more common in SPC teachers but its sparse

"Respected by students" "Big time extra credit" "Get ready to read"

Great Professor. Material was very difficult and Professor Tucker made it so easy understand. a little bit of writing in this class, especially CTAP paper. Gives a bunch of extra credit. Have to participate in class in order to have an A. Would take him again if I had to.

Excellent professor. The classroom environment is the biggest advantage of taking Dr. Tucker. It is clear that he cares about the students and class which makes for a good class. This is not an easy course though, there is a large critical thinking paper midway through that is worth a lot of points and a group project at the end of the course.

A model teacher. Always came in with an upbeat attitude that made everyone laugh and smile. Gave great challenges but with a very forgiving time frame in order to complete them. Is an example of how to be down to Earth while having high standards of excellence.

Professor Tucker was a pretty good instructor. He cared about what he taught. His quizzes are pretty easy and the class all together is easy. Make sure you don't talk too much to others because he will get annoyed and don't use your phone.

All quiz/exam questions come from lectures and the book. Read the chapters/pay attention, you will pass He has one major project at the end of the year, but he gives you a lot of options for it. HE HATES CELLPHONES! He cracked down on attendance, so ignore anyone saying you don't need to show up. This class will enrich your perspective of religion.

PHI1600 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I took this class online, and despite my distaste for the subject, the professor made it manageable! The class was set up well. The CTAP was certainly the most difficult part of the class and required a LOT of work, but it was worth the effort and I received an A on mine. Took a LOT of working on it though! The professor was greatly helpful!

I do not recommend this teacher. I had no choice because the original teacher I had left due to cancer. Very hard grading system. Got a "D" on my CTAP. Followed guidelines, looked at examples, etc.

PHI1600 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I was surprised at how good of a rating he was given. Maybe I just got a bad class. Extremely unorganized. I am in a blended class which is half online and half in class. You need to do your best with what little direction is given and hope for the best. Enthusiastic but somehow class still seems to be a burden on his shoulders.

This class is probably the most I have ever learned in just one class. I feel as though I am a better person after ethics and I seem to apply it to my every day life. Not a hard class, there is alot of work involved, but its well worth it!

His ethics class was extremely interesting. His lectures are conceptual so you need to read the textbook to do well on the quizzes. However this is a good thing because you leave this class knowing more than you would if he just went over notes. Only bad thing is all quizzes are online and he never mentions them so it's easy to forget to do them.

He enjoys what he does and wants you to enjoy his class. There are quizzes before every class but they are not difficult. A great teacher and allows for people with different opinions to speak.
